“When We have the Aroma of Christ Jesus We cannot hide it”.

Dear all,

May God bless and strengthen you all the days of your life Ephesians 6: 12 – 17

Word:

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:13-14

Thought:

True believers have been transferred from darkness to light, from slavery to freedom, from guilt to forgiveness and from the power of Satan to the power of God.

Our conduct should reflect our new allegiance.

“When you have the Aroma of Christ Jesus you cannot hide it”.

Have a Victorious walk in Christ

May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace. Phil 1: 2

Jacob wrestles and prays and prevails with Christ…Esau’s mind is wonderfully turned from the revengeful purpose he has harbored for twenty years. Moses cries to God… the sea divides. Moses prays…Amalek is discomfited. Joshua prays….Achan is discovered. Hannah prays…Samuel is born. David prays….Ahithophel hangs himself. Asa prays…a victory is gained. Jehoshaphat cries to God….God turns away his foes. Isaiah prays…the dream is revealed. Daniel prays…the lions are muzzled. Daniel prays…the seventy weeks are revealed. Ezra prays at Ahava.…God answers. Nehemiah start a prayer…the King’s heart is softened in a minute. Elijah prays…a drought of three years succeeds. Elijah prays…rain descends apace. Elisha prays…Jordan is divided. The church prays fervently…Peter is delivered by an angel. – Adapted from Streams in the Desert by Charles E. Cowman

Quiet Convictions often Earn Long Term Respect

Dear all,

Grace and peace be to you in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Pet 1:2

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. Ephesians 1:3

Word:

As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him—  you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame. II Peter 2: 4-6.

Thought: Let us renew our vision and confidence in Christ.

The Characteristics of Christ – the Cornerstone, is completely trustworthy and precious to those who believe in Him.

Quiet convictions often earn long term respect.

Twelve Ordinary Men

Dear all,

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love. 1 Corinthians 16: 13 -14.

Word: Jesus called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness. Matthew 10: 1

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+10&version=NIV

Thought: God doesn’t call the qualified. He qualifies the called.

The twelve disciples were personally selected and called by Christ. Ordinary men-people like you and me – became the instrument by which Christ’s message was carried to the ends of the earth. No wonder they are such fascinating characters. – Adapted from John Macarthur’s Twelve Ordinary Men.

Forgiven People – Forgive People; Healed People – Heal People!

Dear all,

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 1: 3

Word:

Then he said, “Remember me when you come into your Kingdom.”

Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

Luke 23: 42-43

Thought:

True forgiveness comes from God in order to make us be the right disciple of Christ Jesus. As a result, we will have not only a peaceful life but also a fruitful life. Moreover, forgiven people know the deep love of God in Christ Jesus and cannot keep any kind of hatred against anyone.

Forgiven people – Forgive people

Healed people – Heal people

Stand Firm in Christ

Doers Vs Hearers

Dear all,

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

Listening and Doing:

But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.

James 1: 22 – 25

It is important to listen to what God’s Word says, but it is much more important to obey it and to do what it says. We can measure the effectiveness of our Bible study time by the effect it has on our behavior and attitudes. Do you put into action what you have studied?

Matthew 7:24-27 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

The Two Foundations

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and [a]acts on them, [b]may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the [c]floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. 26 Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not [d]act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 The rain fell, and the [e]floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+7%3A24-27+&version=NASB

When a person is truly born again, he has the Spirit of God living within (Romans 8:9), and the Spirit enables him to know and do the Father’s will. God’s love in his heart (Rom 5:5) motivates him to obey God and serve others.

Obedience to God’s word – Evidence of true faith (James 2: 14).

 Pass it on! Proclaiming Jesus Wherever He Leads us!
